Need help budgeting?!
Do you struggle with your finances? Why not try to make a weekly budget? Add up all your total expected income, include part-time job earnings, all Student Finance including grants, welfare/benefits and any expected one-off payments.
There are 42 weeks of term time so a good idea would be to divide your total income amount by 42.
If you fill in the Budgeting sheet below - you can see if you are spending too much money in a section you can't really afford to! It can be upsetting to stop buying luxuries you're used to having, but if you budget properly you will be able to treat yourself!

|TV License and wi-fi|
|Food and toiletries|
|Travel (car if owned)|
|Medical costs (e.g. prescriptions)|
|Study costs (e.g. books)|
|Sports and hobbies|
|Social and entertainment|
